Several overseas voters faced difficulties in returning their voting documents to Luxembourg ahead of Sunday's municipal elections, leading to Pirate Party MP Sven Clement raising the issue in a parliamentary enquiry.
Minister for Home Affairs, Taina Bofferding, confirmed the existence of these problems.
The postal service had signed a contract with the state and disseminated information to postal administrations worldwide to ensure they were well-informed about the voting procedure.

Municipalities were responsible for covering the costs associated with the return of postal votes.
Of all the municipalities, 96 opted for prepaid return envelopes, while the remaining six used international reply coupons.
However, one municipality failed to include an adequate number of reply coupons. Furthermore, three incidents were reported where issues arose concerning the acceptance of reply coupons or the return of the yellow envelopes - two in Austria and one in England.

Given the recurrence of such problems, Clement suggested the possibility of directing individuals to send their voting documents to embassies in their respective countries. However, the minister clarified that this alternative was not feasible.
